Evidence of Hope - Movie + Q&A with Filmmaker
Thursday, May 2
Olson Campus Center, Lecture Room (lower level)
1490 Fulham St, Saint Paul, MN
The Evidence Of Hope is an impressionistic portrait of the lives of three unique individuals — a courageous woman in Honduras challenging the indignity within a city dump, a Filipino preacher confronting the inequity within a government, a police officer fighting the injustice within the corrupt Kenyan system — as they define what it means to confront oppression through the pursuit of their divine calling, revealing hope and discovering what it is that we are all made for.
Filmmaker Chad Amour will be present for a Question & Answer session following the screening. Watch trailer here: www.theevidenceofhope.com
Event is free & open to the public! On-campus co-sponsors: GMI, Voca:Gospel & Justice, Exploring Diakonia, Women Leading
